From the grow the sport discussion - What is the waterskiing lifestyle?
I am on a tournament lake system (www.placidwaters.com, shameless plug), but have a MasterCraft X-2 wakeboard boat. I have to borrow a ski boat to ski the course. My kids prefer to surf. They load up the boat with a bunch of friends, crank the tunes, and blow through a tank of gas surfing and laughing. I spend a lot of time surfing with them - it is a lot of fun, and I physically will be able to do it well into advanced age. I prefer to slalom, but family and my limited time with my teenagers comes first.
